  1. Enoch (ancestor of Noah) - Wikipedia

    Enoch (/ ˈ iː n ə k / , EE-nuhk) is a biblical figure prior to Noah's flood and the son of Jared and father of Methuselah. He was of the Antediluvian period in the Hebrew Bible. This Enoch is not to be confused with Cain's son Enoch (Genesis 4:17). The text of the Book of Genesis says Enoch lived 365 years before he was taken by God.

  2. This Enoch is not to be confused with Enoch, son of Jared, to whom the authorship of the Book of Enoch is ascribed. After the birth of Enoch, the Hebrew text of Genesis 4:17 is unclear. Either Cain built a city and named it after Enoch, or else Enoch built a city. According to Jubilees 4:9, Enoch's mother/aunt was named Awan.

    Enoch ap­pears in the Book of Gen­e­sis of the Pen­ta­teuch as the sev­enth of the ten pre-Del­uge Pa­tri­archs. Gen­e­sis re­counts that each of the pre-Flood Pa­tri­archs lived for sev­eral cen­turies. Gen­e­sis 5 pro­vides a ge­neal­ogy of these ten fig­ures (from Adam to Noah), pro­vid­ing the age at which each fa­thered the next, and the age of each fig­ure at death. Enoch is con­sid­ered by many to be the ex­cep­tion, who is said to "not see death" (He­brews 11:5). Fur­ther­more, Gen­e­sis 5:22–29 states that Enoch lived 365 years, which is ex­tremely short in the con­text of his peers, who are all recorded as dying at over 700 years of age. The brief ac­count of Enoch in Gen­e­sis 5 ends with the cryp­tic note that "he [was]not; for God took him".

    Three ex­ten­sive apoc­ryphalworks are at­trib­uted to Enoch: 1. 1st Book of Enoch, or simply the Book of Enoch, written in Ge'ez (Ethiopic), first time brought in Europe by James Bruce and translated in English by August Dillmann and Reverent Schoode - recognized by the Ethiopian OrthodoxBible and usually dated between the third century BC and the first century AD. 2. 2nd Book of Enoch or the Book of the Secrets of Enoch, written in Old Bulgarian, Russian, Serbian and other slav languages, first translated in English by William Morfill - recognized by the Old SlavonicBible usually dated to the first century AD. 3. 3rd Book of Enoch, a Rabbinic text in Hebrew usually dated to the fifth century AD. These re­count how Enoch was taken up to Heaven and was ap­pointed guardian of all the ce­les­tial trea­sures, chief of the archangels, and the im­me­di­ate at­ten­dant on God's throne. He was sub­se­quently taught all se­crets and mys­ter­ies and, with all the an­gels at his back, ful­fil...

    New Testament

    The New Tes­ta­ment con­tains three ref­er­ences to Enoch. 1. The first is a brief mention in one of the genealogies of the ancestors of Jesus by Luke (Luke 3:37). 2. The second mention is in Hebrews 11: 5 (KJV) which says, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." This suggests he did not experience the mortal death ascribed to Adam's other descendants...

    Early Christianity

    Early Chris­tian­ity con­tains var­i­ous tra­di­tions con­cern­ing the "trans­la­tion" of Enoch. Re­gard­ing the quo­ta­tion in Jude, most of early Chris­tian­ity con­sid­ered it an in­de­pen­dent quo­ta­tion pre-dat­ing the flood. Re­gard­ing the Book of Enoch it­self Ori­gen, Jerome and Au­gustin men­tion it, but as of no au­thor­ity. Justin, Athenago­ras, Ire­naeus, Clemens Alexan­dri­nus, Lac­tan­tius, and oth­ers bor­rowed an opin­ion out of this book of Enoch, that the an­gels had sex­u...

    Ac­cord­ing to the Fig­urists (a group of Je­suit mis­sion­ar­ies mainly led by Joachim Bou­vet into China at the end of the sev­en­teenth and the be­gin­ning of the eigh­teenth cen­tury and based on ideas of Mat­teo Ricci 1552 to 1610), Fu Xiin China's an­cient his­tory is ac­tu­ally Enoch.

    In Islam, Enoch (Ara­bic: أَخْنُوخ‎, ro­man­ized: ʼAkhnūkh [com­monly in Is­lamic lit­er­a­ture]: ʼIdrīs إِِدْرِيس)) is iden­ti­fied with Idris, as for ex­am­ple by the His­tory of Al-Tabari in­tre­pre­ta­tion and the Mead­ows of Gold. The Quran con­tains two ref­er­ences to Idris; in Surah Al-An­biya (The Prophets) verse num­ber 85, and in Surah Maryam(Mary) verses 56-57: 1. (The Prophets, 21:85): "And the same blessing was bestowed upon Ismail and Idris and Zul-Kifl, because they all practised fortitude." 2. (Mary19:56-57): "And remember Idris in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet. And We lifted him to a lofty station". Idris is closely linked in Mus­lim tra­di­tion with the ori­gin of writ­ing and other tech­ni­cal arts of civilization, in­clud­ing the study of as­tro­nom­i­cal phe­nom­ena, both of which Enoch is cred­ited with in the Tes­ta­ment of Abra­ham. Nonethe­less, al­though some Mus­lims view Enoch and Idris as the same prophet while oth­ers do not, many Mu...
